Steven “The Hair Doc” Thomas
RYG: Would you tell us, who is Steven Thomas?
ST: I am a hard worker, Goal oriented, Hair Psychologist, and Beauty Counselor,Passionate, Patient, and Caring.
RYG: How long have you been in the Hair Industry?
RYG: What do you consider your specialty?
ST: Everything Hair…that’s why I’m considered the “The Hair Doc” because I believe in ultimate hair care.
RYG: Would you consider yourself a celebrity stylist?
ST: NO. I don’t like to be labeled. I got into the industry to make people beautiful. You could say, “I’m a hair artist that want to share beauty with who ever wants it.”
RYG: Is there anything you would like to do that you have not done yet?
ST: Yes, I have always wanted to be a platform artist in New York. I love sharing the skills I’ve developed and acquired over the years with other artists. I also want to bring my fashion to the forefront. The piece I have on today is one of my many designs.
RYG: I Love that Jacket. So, Steven when you look back at the beginning, were there any hurdles you had to cross? If so, how did you overcome?
ST: WOW, being from the south my family wanted me to be or do more masculine things. They wanted me to become a lawyer, or a psychologist but I just wanted to do what I’ve found passion in doing…and my aunt was the one that gave me the encouragement I needed to pursue my dreams.
Before my aunt passed away, she told me that I couldn’t live my life always trying to please people. She also said, keep my mind focus on my dreams, then I moved here to Maryland and have been doing what I love ever since.
RYG: After going through that, what words of encouragement do you have for new artists in the industry?
ST: Be willing to learn and work hard, you have to be strong minded and goal oriented.
